Eagles WR Riley Cooper sent home due to illness

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Copoper was sent home from Tuesday's practice due to a possible stomach bug or food poisoning. Cooper is coming off a career-best game in which he caught five passes for 139 yards and three TDs. In that game, quarterback Nick Foles @NFoles8 connected on seven TD passes, tying an NFL-record. Cooper is not expected to miss Week 10 and is considered day-today.

Fantasy Analysis:

Cooper has had more underwhelming performances than great ones this year. In six of his nine games, he has gone for fewer than 30 receiving yards. He is trending upward though. In three of his last four, he has posted at least 88 receiving yards. Cooper is certainly worth a roster spot and in a pinch can make for a good WR3. He seems to have chemistry with Foles so that always helps too.
